And does that mean 4 of the 5 episodes have been covered? Or more likely it's not quite as ordered as all that.
I'd have thought so as the rewrites for SciFi / Horror were April 10, Thriller 15, then it seems across the last few days people have been asked to do History and Kitchen Sink, so I'm crossing my fingers documentary will come this week probably towards the end. I believe they weren't getting as much sent through for Kitchen Sink, so perhaps that didn't take very long to sort through. I didn't get asked for rewrites for either of those categories, with good reason probably!
I think documentary is going to be very competitive though, out of interest what formats did people use for it? A few of mine tried to mix interview with archive recordings to get some action in there, probably about four of my seven, then I did a live shoot of a documentary in the wilderness, a straight interview doc and a more modern reality style documentary.

I'd love to get a rewrite email, but would imagine lots of sketches get straight through, so hope is still there!! For those that have had rewrite requests, have they asked for major changes or is it just: 'can you add a funny line here/can you write a better punchline' type thing. Thanks
My first one asked for an extra beat that I really should've thought of myself, a change to the final line and a rethink on how the end itself is initiated. The changes requested were pretty simple but I tightened up the lot anyway.
Second rewrite was more substantial, the idea was liked and I was told there were some good lines but the overall structure needed work and it needed slimming in terms of characters. They gave me a suggestion as to how it should be set out scene wise, so I tailored it mostly to their request with a few new lines thrown in for good measure.
It was good to see the kind of thing they prefer out of all the sketches I sent, I was going to ask them once it has been broadcast if we're allowed to upload the scripts here, it'd be useful to see what other people did that was accepted.
